    I need to know who the owners are. Mother, Louise Harrah Pack was my mother and she told me that Poppy's (Walter Harrah) sister owned this motel. I imagine the children, my cousins, of my great aunt run the motel now. Will be in Tampa with my daughter during the month of March and would love to visit the motel and perhaps stay a night or two. Thanks. Alverdia

    Why don't you call the motel and ask?
